Adventure

It was a dark and stormy afternoon when the call came through…

Posted on Updated on

The ringing phone could only just be heard over the sound of the wind outside and the excited chatter inside. Someone needed our help or rather a few someones needed our help…..

Invitation To Events sprang into action and dispatched teams across Nottingham to discover the hidden clues, objects and codes. Each team would have only 60 minutes to solve the mysteries, puzzles and challenges in order to find the key they needed to escape their room.

As part of a Hen Weekend in Nottingham, we organised an afternoon at an Escape Room. Or rather THREE rooms at one Escape Room Provider.

Logiclock is a puzzle-based live escape game where small groups of people solve puzzles and mysteries to escape from a room or series of rooms. All of the escape rooms are theme-decorated, as shown by the after game photos . Logiclock advertise that all of the decorations and puzzles are handmade and unique to their venue.

Cosa Nostra – The Sicilian Adventure

The British Spy Agency required a secret team to infiltrate the villa of the Sicilian mafia, where 4 mafia bosses were holding a meeting. They needed to discover the plans of the mafia bosses and escape from the villa without being detected. Would they succeed in their mission?

Pirates in Nottingham

While all this was going on another group was dispatched to a secret house discovered in the heart of Nottingham which was full of pirate treasures. Although it had been rumored that such a place existed,
no one had left the pirate shelter alive to tell the tale. Would our team be successful in acquiring the treasures and finding the final key to escape?

Made in Stein – Science Adventure

Professor E had been working on something of great importance when he had abandoned his office abruptly. Now his assistant, Mrs. Taylor, was looking for someone with a scientific brain to complete his research.
This was where our task force came in. Although Mrs Taylor had  seen a lot of candidates,  she was still searching for the best of the best. Would our team prove to be what she needed?

Awaiting exam results can be stressful

Posted on Updated on

August can be stressful as you await your exam results

  • Did you do enough revision?
  • How lenient will they be with the marking?
  • Did you read the question correctly or skim it and make some stupid mistake?

Maybe you should have just stolen the exam paper!

Well, no, in real life you shouldn’t. But for an escape room adventure that’s just what we were asked to do.

An Eccentric Professor’s Final Exams

On a trip to Madrid we tried out the escape room “Exit Madrid”. Luckily the game was available in English as well as Spanish.

We played The Lab, a medium to high level game that was created in 2010. Our mission was to steal an exam paper from our lecturers office because we’d been partying rather than revising. Would we find the paper and discover what´s on Prof. Calm´s next exam?

As with other escape rooms, this one starts by locking you in a room, where you can only escape if you complete the mission. We were given 66 minutes to complete it and were warned that 45% of the teams don’t succeed in escaping the room at EXIT Game Madrid. 

Result!

Pleased to say that, with a few hints from the Games Master, we completed the mission with nearly 3 minutes to spare.
